As I was making my rounds before bed last night, it occured to me that all of this rushing around and fussing about to leave here is productive, yes, but surely headed for a meltdown of epic proportions. And I remembered the wonderful advice I got when Stewey was newly sick...be present with him and enjoy every moment.
Today I am going to sit in every room in my house and just...be. I'm going to look at the light and look at the little views and look at the dust bunnies running around having picnics...and just enjoy Chez Spinster a little bit longer before it's filled with moving men and chaos.
There are at least a thousand and one things I SHOULD be doing, but today I'm just going to take a break and live in my little house and drink my damn good cup of coffee and stitch my stitching and read a book and take a nap and cook a meal and smell the proverbial roses.
Tomorrow, I'll go stitch with Miss Jane at her church and then I'll come home and get back to work. Today, though...I'm going to play!
